HC Deb 08 March 1928 vol 214 cc1247-8W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much revenue the Betting Duty has yielded each month since it was imposed?


The net revenue derived from betting taxation in each of the months from November, 1926, to January, 1928, inclusive, was approximately as follows:

1926: £
November 327,400
December 132,000

state the ground or grounds of the decision?


I have further considered this question and, in all the circumstances, I am prepared to arrange that, in the case of claims under the Old Age Pensions Acts, 1908 to 1924, and the Blind Persons Act, 1920, referred to the Registrar-General for verification, search should be made in the 1871 as well as in earlier Census records. I am satisfied that no advantage commensurate with the work entailed, would result from extending such searches to include also the Census records for 1881 and 1891.
